advice for sunday services
Hoping you all can offer some advice:
DH and I have been asked to be on a panel to discuss the fraework for a third service at our church. We currently have a traditional service at 10am along with Sunday school for the kids, and a contemporary service at 8:30 am. We are really trying to make this service young family oriented and are really willing to step outside the box and do something radical. What do you love/dislike about your current service you attend and what are the 5 most important features of a worship service/experience - in your opinion. We just got a new pastor and I feel like this may be our chance to really step out and show the community that the Lord is in our town. I would appreciate any input you can give. I was temped to sort of "shop around" and go to other churches to see what they are doing and how the people respond, just for ideas, but we REALLY love our new pastor and dont want to spend several weeks missing his messages.
